It is important to pray for our nation because it’s the place the lord gave us, on this post are 7 scriptural prayers for the nations and the world.
We always have to pray for our home, the earth, because it is the only place that God gave us to live.
Every year, it is worth celebrating the world and enjoying the home that God gave us, even while we remember and pray for those who do not enjoy those same benefits due to illness among other ailments, but just seeing heaven gives them hope.
This year, why not make one or more of these prayers, drawn from the Bible, as part of your thanksgiving and prayer for the world and nation, perhaps printing them out and starting your cookout by taking turns reading them? You could even make them an annual tradition.
Below is a collection of 7 biblical prayers for the nation and the world.
1) John 8:3
Jesus, as you walked this earth, you proclaimed: “If the Son sets you free, you will be truly free.” Thank you for all of our freedoms, including those that we often overlook or take for granted, chief among them being freedom from condemnation and punishment.
Please let the freedom found in Christ be known not only to us, but also to those who have yet to experience Your great love, whether they live in our community, state, nation, or in other nations from end to end. another from the earth.
2) Revelation 5:9
Lamb of God, the saints, and the angels in heaven are right when they sing: “You are worthy to take the scroll and open its seals because you were slain, and with your blood, you purchased for God people from every tribe, tongue and people and nation .”
May your kingdom reach every tribe, language, people, and nation. Deliver us from the intolerance and hatred that divide us. Help us to rejoice instead in the great diversity of Your Creation, to find and focus on the humanity we share and the freedoms we treasure.
3) Psalm 67:1-5
God, “have mercy on us and bless us and let your face shine on us” as a nation. Make us strong but peaceful. Make us just and also merciful. Make us prosperous and generous. Make us a beacon of liberty and justice in a world in need.
4) Psalm 113:4, KJV
Lord God, Your Word says that You are “high above all nations, and Your glory above the heavens.” We live in a nation of many different creeds and convictions, ethnicities and origins, but we know that You love us and reign over us all.
Please allow the ways we exercise our freedoms to reflect Your holiness and Your compassion, “so that Your ways may be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations” (Psalm 67:2).
5) Psalm 122:6-8
Heavenly Father, like the psalmist’s plea, we pray for Jerusalem as we also pray for our nation and region and for all those who face threats to their safety and protection: “May those who love you be safe.
May there be peace within your walls and safety within your citadels.” For the sake of those souls you love and the world Jesus died for, I will say, “Peace be upon them all.”
6) Psalm 133:1-3
As Your Word says, Lord, “How good and pleasant it is” when people live together in unity, how refreshing and purifying. And how much sadness and suffering results when a nation and a people are divided.
Please shower us with a spirit of unity and cooperation like “precious oil”, like “Hermon’s dew”, washing away bitterness and guiding us towards mutual respect and shared hope.
7) Psalm 146:6-8
Lord God, Creator of heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them, you are faithful forever. On this day when we celebrate our freedoms, we remember those who find themselves in different circumstances.
We ask You, as Your Word says, to defend the cause of the oppressed and give food to the hungry. Release the prisoners, give sight to the blind, lift up those who are bowed down, wherever they are, whatever language they speak, whatever nationality they say, so that they, too, may soon possess the kinds of benefits we enjoy today.
